New York Times bestselling author, Hoda Kotb, recently released a book titled, This Just Speaks to Me: Words to Live by Every Day. The book is full of quotes to offer inspiration, perspective and hope. “This book recognizes the struggles we have all endured this year. Yeah, there’s been a lot of rough times, but ultimately, this book is uplifting,” said Kotb on the Today Show.

Reading quotes can get us thinking creatively, critically, strategically or, best of all, positively.
